While images of daffodils and tulips dance in your head while longing for spring, the Highland Dancers can take it one step further and help put not only a spring in your step but thoughts of summer in there too. They are holding a "Summer Lovin'" trunk raffle. The beautiful handmade trunk is full of summertime treasure! There is a beach blanket, beautiful stained glass wind chimes, beach bag and other fun stuff to help sweep away the winter blahs. Tickets are 1 for $2.00 or 3 for $5.00 and can be purchased from any of our Highland dancers or at the College of Piping. The draw will take place for the trunk and its contents on June 16th at the year end recital. Help support our Highland dancers in their quest to compete in Montreal in July!
Our Highland Dancers are also holding a fundraising concert on April 13th at 6:30pm. It is being held at Gulf Shore Consolidated School in North Rustico. There will be performances by Ryan MacNeil of The Barra MacNeils, Dakota Oliver, Kathryn Gallant and Olivia Blacquiere. The College of Piping Grade 3 Pipe Band will perform as well as The College of Piping Dance Company and our talented Highland Dancers will show us their fancy footwork. Tickets are $10.00 and are available at the door or at The College (436-5377). Help support our Highland Dancers so that they can reach their goal of competing at the Canadian Highland Dance Championships in Montreal!
